Shamus O'Connor entered into trading the equity markets for his own personal accounts in 1997, but he now specializes in options and strategies.

In 2001, he decided to use his knowledge of trading and the brokerage business to help people. He began touring the country educating individual investors on how to trade the equity, options and foreign currency markets.

He decided to join Online Trading Academy as an Instructor in 2007, because of the quality of education provided.  He takes a "keep it simple" approach to trading and presents in a manner that makes difficult concepts easy for anyone to understand. Shamus believes trading is a constant learning process and he personally gains many lessons from students, reinforcing discipline and rules in his own personal trading. He gets tremendous satisfaction out of helping people trade successfully for themselves and gain financial independence.
